Mike is from Spartanburg, SC. He surrendered his life to Jesus one night in 1992 after attending a NewSong concert with his sister. As they were talking about Jesus on the drive home, Mike realized that although he knew about Jesus, he did not have a personal relationship with Him. He joined the ECBC staff in 2010. Mike is married to Susan and they have four children, Abigail, Andrew, Jonathan, and Timothy. He enjoys playing his instrument and disc golf.
